📱Apple iPhone 12 Pro Max – The ultimate 2021 Review – Best price in UAE

The ultimate 2021 Review of Apple iPhone 12 Pro Max

The Apple iPhone 12 Pro Max is the star of the 4 models of  iPhone 12 series launched in late 2020.
The overall quality of this smartphone is excellent but the price is not for all budgets and higher than many competitors.
It is a professional and heavy smartphone model, that’s why we recommend it for advanced users looking for top features.

Main results

The Apple iPhone 12 Pro Max arrived on the market with the latest version of iOS, the iOS 14.2.
The huge 6.7″ screen with a resolution of 2778 x 1284 pixels is much more pleasant than that of other models and is also very quick to react to commands.
The battery of Apple iPhone 12 Pro Max is standard: in our usage scenario, its 3687 mAh allow it to reach 24 hours, which is on average.
The 114 GB of actual available internal memory (128 GB declared) may be enough to store our data, but if not we can’t expand the phone memory.
It is a very robust mobile phone: it exceeded the drop test without any difficulty.
Models in this price range are usually very powerful and this mobile phone is no exception: therefore, it can be used without problems even for tasks that require high performance, such as some video games.
Among the most interesting functions are: being dual SIM (two SIM, two numbers, can work at the same time) and being water resistant (IP68).
This model is compatible with 5G connection.



Apple iPhone 12 Pro Max has three rear cameras of 12 MP, which allow you to get excellent quality photos in all light conditions and amazing videos (can record in Dolby Vision, the format used by film studios)!
This mobile phone has a 12 MP front camera, which allows you to take very good selfies.
